About the Book

“Stunning.. . . Youthful angst is rarely portrayed as this terrifying.” —LibraryJournal

DennisCooper and Keith Mayerson’s boundary-breaking graphicnovel Horror Hospital Unplugged is back in a long-awaited reissue.Crystallizing a primal period of creative experimentation for both Cooper,whose Frisk­-era storytelling is at its finest, and Mayerson,whose gritty, unadorned visual style would later explode into color, HorrorHospital Unplugged is a vital piece of underground comics craft. The moody,kaleidoscopic, and sexually charged story of would-be rock star Trevor Machine,and his flirtations with love, fame, homosexual identity, and the disaffectionof youth, is a provocative immersion in world of ambition, confusion, anddebauchery—and an crucial glimpse at the early creative achievement of two culticons.
